There's always Downtown! It hasn't been hit yet.
Yes, that's right! The citizens already thought of that.
In any case, this city was built in three levels, centered on the Stern Medaille Area.
Should the foundation collapse, everything goes down with it.
They're holding citizens hostage.
We can't do anything reckless.
So we should just give in to terrorists?! That's too shameful to even consider! I never thought this would happen.
I thought you said the Heroes would handle this! Ms.
Agnes, isn't there anything we can do? No, not right now.
So we're supposed to just sit here and watch?! There really isn't anything we can do.
No, I'm sure there's something only we can do.
And right now, that's standing by and waiting.
I understand how you feel.
But right now, people's lives are at stake.
You think I don't know that?! Come on, guys.
This is no time to be arguing.
We don't have time for this.
What's his problem? Sorry about that, guys! It looks like I pissed him off.
What did you say to him? Well, I told him about how I got my code name.
Huh? The "Ko" in "Kotetsu" means "Tiger," hence "Wild Tiger.
" Get it? Huh? This is no time for your jokes! No wonder he's so upset.
Yeah.
I'm going to go apologize to him.
I never knew he was so insensitive.
You actually bought that? Hey, Bunny! Where are you going? Wait up! I'm sorry.
I lost it back there, when you were only trying to help.
Just when I'd finally found him! There's an emergency! What? I can't hear you! The powered exosuits destroyed a support column in East Bronze.
Sky High, Blue Rose, head to the scene right away! I don't mind going, but what should we do? Ignore the suits.
Saving people and preventing widespread panic are your top priorities! I'm going too, Agnes! Don't do anything without permission! Why not?! There might be another attack.
I want the other Heroes to be on standby! We have to move before there's another attack! Why're the higher-ups taking so long to make a decision?! With Sternbild standing on the brink of destruction, we only hope the mayor will come to a quick decision.
He's right.
We can't just stand here thinking about the next attack.
You know We've been waiting for some good news.
Still not convinced that we're serious? Our next attack will be in one hour, at eleven o'clock.
Where it'll be is up to a roll of the dice.
I won't wait any longer.
Let's go, Bunny! Hey, Wild Tiger! Are you disobeying orders? Another support column is going to be destroyed.
They could be bluffing! But the city is already beginning to tilt! We can't drag this out any longer.
You must make a decision, Mr.
Mayor.
Huh? We have no choice.
Please have Jake released.
Wait just a second.
Don't dump all the responsibility on me.
I'll take full responsibility, if that's what it takes.
But only you can make the final decision! But, if by any chance things go wrong Sky High and Blue Rose have been deployed, per your command.
There's just one problem.
Why are you hesitating? Isn't saving people's lives your top priority? Y-You're Apollon's Catching Jake and his gang can wait.
That's what we Heroes are here for! But What's wrong with you people?! All you guys care about is that, um, your uh Our what? Uh, what was it? Umm Protect Protecting their own self-interests? Yeah, that! Ah.
Think about what's important.
Your family and friends are in this city too, right? Just make a decision! Anyway, forget your own self whatever it was.
Self-interests.
Yeah! Though muddled as ever, he does make a good point.
He's absolutely right.
Except that he won't be able to catch us.
We got tired of waiting.
I'm here to pound out the details.
Y-You're with Ouroboros? I'm Hans Chuckman.
I'm the negotiator.
Bastard! You've got some nerve, showing up like this! Calm down.
You know what'll happen if you attack me? That's right.
People's lives are at stake.
Sorry.
People's lives take top priority, Mr.
Mayor! So, what did you bunch of big shots decide, huh? Oh, umm Well, in order to ensure the people's safety, we request that you withdraw your powered exosuits.
Huh? Cut the shit! You don't understand the situation, do you?! Ah, no, the power "P-Power?" Cut the crap.
I'm here to hear you say, "yes.
" All right.
We'll give it more thought.
Don't bother trying to stall for time.
If I'm not back before time's up Kaboom.
C-Citizens, I have an announcement to make.
As your lives and safety are our top priority, we have concluded that we cannot risk any more casualties.
We will give in to their demands, and release Jake Martinez.
We're saved, then? Jake? I thought you were in for life? You wanna know why I'm on this side of the bars? It's simple, really.
Because I'm Jake, and you're not.
Oh yeah.
You can still call me "Jake" next time I see you.
Though there won't be a next time.
I figured it was your doing, Kriem! I'm sorry I kept you waiting, Master Jake.
How'd you do it? Some things are best left to the imagination.
.
It's secret, eh? I love secrets! And I really love women who keep secrets.
Jake was released just moments ago! Has the crisis been averted? Right now, we need to be patient.
Once the citizens are safe, we'll make our move.
I hope this plan goes well.
I know, right? Will that poor boy really be okay? This city's just as big a shit-hole as ever.
How about a swig? I'm piloting right now.
Boring! You think you can get away with doing this to me?! This city's going to sink! Well, then.
That's where I come in.
Huh? I'm sorry for asking you to do this.
I figured your powers could pull this off.
If anything goes wrong, your life will be at risk.
I'm not forcing you to do this, so I'll do it! I'm a Hero, after all.
This is something only I can do, right? So I will! Hey, Origami.
You forgot this.
Ah Thanks.
If anything happens, call us right away.
We'll be ready and waiting.
Right! Our future rests on your shoulders.
We're counting on you, Origami Cyclone! Yes, sir! Oh, hey Kriem Who's he again? Hans Chuckman.
He isn't a NEXT, but he believes in our cause.
A regular human, huh? Explains why he's such a drag.
He wishes to see a utopian nation controlled by NEXT; a world ruled by you.
Oh? You wanna be a NEXT someday, do you? Uh? Not a damn chance.
Right, Kriem? Yes.
We NEXT are God's chosen people.
Chuckman! Y-Yes! Master Jake has been released, so prepare to free the hostages as planned.
Right.
Wait! Free the hostages? What's that shit? GO NEXT! First in taste, pepsi NEX! Has anything happened? Situation unchanged.
They aren't making any moves.
I see.
When will they pull out their forces?! There's no need to panic.
It's only been thirty minutes since his release.
They could be sight-seeing.
It's all right.
The plan is going well.
For now, let's wait for Origami Cyclone to report in.
Will it really be all right? What happens if he As long as he's alive, we will receive these vital sign readings.
But if this green light turns red Hey! What's going on? We released him, as promised! Don't ask me.
I don't know.
We have to trust Origami, and wait.
What is Ouroboros planning?! Answer me! Quit it, Bunny.
That's taking it too far! I'm going to go cool off for a bit.
They probably saw right through your shitty plan.
Please, leave me alone.
How long do you plan on standing there? None of your business, leave me alone.
I'm being pathetic, I know.
Pathetic? Whadda you mean? When Jake appears before us, I don't think I'll be able to hold myself back.
Don' worry.
I'b gotcha cober'd.
Relying on others isn't so bad, you know? Hey, Kotetsu, Barnaby! We've got trouble! Citizens of Sternbild First off, thanks for making me a free man again.
Jake! But I had no CLUE I'd been released in exchange for sparing the lives of trash like you.
So, then I thought why bother releasing you at all?! What's he saying? Well then, I hold all of your lives in my hands.
You'll do anything I want, right? So what should it be? Later.
Origami's still safe.
Damn it, how long will this take?! Mr.
Maverick, what's going on?! Mr.
Maverick! We foresaw this happening.
The plan is going just fine.
If our spy, Origami Cyclone, tells us how to control the powered exosuits, we'll have our course of action.
B-But how do we explain this to the people? W-W-We can't reveal this plan to the public.
What should we d— I have a plan.
What's the meaning of this? What kind of bargain did you make? Explain yourself to the people! Give us an answer! I cannot give you an answer! Mr.
Maverick is handling matters.
Are you dodging responsibility? And you call yourself our mayor?! That isn't it.
He'll be holding a press conference afterwards.
Will that do? Hold on a moment! Yes.
At two o'clock, I will explain matters to the people, just as planned.
You wanted to see me, sir? There is something I must tell you all.
As you all know, Sternbild is in held in the grip of a terrorist attack.
The mayor has decided that your lives take top priority, and has acted accordingly.
I do not believe he is mistaken.
And this is the result? I'm sure you're dissatisfied with the situation.
But I ask you, shouldn't your anger be directed toward Ouroboros and the cowardly terrorist, Jake Martinez? There is a Hero waiting patiently to fight these terrorists.
I think now is the time to reveal just why he chose to become a Hero.
Barnaby? Along with why he is the only one who fights under his real name.
Reveal my past to the public? Yes.
This is no longer your problem alone, Barnaby.
But what about how Barnaby feels? I understand.
However, right now the people need the courage and the spirit to stand up to the terrorists.
If you share your thoughts with them, they'll surely be inspired.
Please, lend us your aid! After that terrible tragedy, he became a Hero, saying that he wished to go by the name "Barnaby Brooks, Jr.
" Taking on his father's name, "Barnaby Brooks," was his way of declaring war on the man who killed his parents! Is this for real? So that's why he shows his face.
His father's name, huh? And now, he's finally found that wretched man— the one whom he saw murder his parents twenty years ago, at only four years of age.
That man was Jake! Barnaby is every bit as angry as you are.
No, he's even angrier.
It would be no exaggeration to say that everything in his life has been done in anticipation of this moment.
Mr.
Barnaby, is that true? Yes, it's all true.
I'll capture Jake, and save the city from the terrorist threat! We're counting on you, Barnaby! Go get him! Things are getting exciting again.
I never knew his past was like that.
So that's why he was so desperate.
We'll catch Jake, for his sake, as well! It's me.
Origami? Yes.
I've finally infiltrated Jake's hideout.
Good job! And good job, again! But now comes the hard part.
I'm going to look into the secret behind those powered exosuits.
Don't overdo it, Origami.
Come back safely, and I'll give you a big kiss.
I'll contact you later.
Wait! Jeez Guess it's time to get ready.
Right, Kotetsu? Yeah.
It all starts here.
Boku ga kie tooi mirai de kaseki ni nattara In the distant future, if I become a fossil Hito wa boku ni nani wo miru darou What would people see in me? Bunseki shite na wo tsukete kaidoku wo shitemo And even if I get analyzed, classified and deciphered Only I will know who I loved Aishita hito wa boku shika shiranai Hello ikiru koto Hey there life Only you can be you Kimi no hoka ni kimi wa dekinai From the bright star that still glitters Kagayaki tsuzukeru hikatta hoshi kara Kagayaki tsuzuke hikatta ano sora kara From that bright sky that still glitters Bokura wa nani wo kanjirareru darou What can we feel?

I'm going to look into the secret behind those powered exosuits.
Don't overdo it, Origami.
Come back safely, and I'll give you a big kiss.
I'll contact you later.
Hey, Chuckman.
Like my new haircut? Uh It looks very good on you, sir.
Doesn't it? I look like a Hero, huh? Heroes are great, right? They're awesome.
Hey, what do you think of Heroes? Right after that pig Legend died, all the NEXT started siding with the humans.
It's awesome! Such an awesome nuisance, you know? We don't want that, do we? Ah, bingo! Hey, Chuckman, what do you think of him? If you were a NEXT, would you want this ability? Well, man? Uh, sure maybe.
He looks like a dumbass, but he'd be useful.
In fact, there's no way I'd waste a power like his.
How would I use him? Well, wouldn't he be the perfect spy? Oh, what's wrong? You're sweatin' like a pig.
Hi! I'm Kotetsu, the member of "Tiger and Bunny" who squashes his burgers before he eats them! We've finally come face-to-face with the man who killed Barnaby's parents! Damn, this bastard is strong! Next time, on Tiger & Bunny: Anyway, this is bad!
